21 Tulip or Lily Signature Quilt

Detail of an unusual signature presentation quilt inscribed and dated: "Easton PA 1846. Presented to Solon Chapin by his Mother in law Mrs. Hocker 1846".
Solon was a famous bridge architect and lived in Easton Pennsylvania.

The chimney block (pieced squares) is a very common signature block but is very unusual to find it paired with a floral block. Here is a more standard version- also a signature quilt from across the river from Easton in New Jersey c. 1860.
